Just saw that my favorite translation of the bible, the ESV, now has 3 different ‘Bible Reading Plans‘ available in iCal format. This format can be imported into many different calendar programs including the online calendar I use, AirSet

The calendar item includes the list of scripture passages but what is great is there is a link to a page that contains the reading for that day, making it very easy to jump from the Old Testament to the New Testament selections.

  • The One Year® Bible:
    Features a reading from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs each day. In one year, you read the Old Testament, New Testament, and Proverbs once, and the Psalms twice.
  • Through the Bible in a Year:
    Each day includes a reading from the Old Testament and New Testament. Starting in Genesis and Matthew, the readings continue sequentially—over the course of a year, you never read the same passage twice.
  • One Year Bible Reading Plan:
    Based on the M’Cheyne reading system, features four different readings for use in both family and personal devotions. Each day has two passages from the Old Testament, one from the New Testament, and one from either the Psalms or the Gospels. In one year, you read the Old Testament once and the New Testament and Psalms twice.

The calendar defaults to scheduling each day’s reading at noon Eastern time, which shows up as 4pm here in Washington State. But at the bottom of the page you can change the default time to any time you want before downloading.

  1. This is great, but when I download the plan into my iCal it automatically places each one at 9am and I can’t change the plan without changing each one individually. Suggestions? -nate

  2. I edited the esv through the bible .ics so that the links go the actual pages and so that the events are “all-day”events. (disclaimer: i have only tested it on osX Lion) if you email me i can send the edited .ics to you.
